Laid off from job. No insurance. Been on OxyContin 60 for 4 years can't afford it now. What are the alternative medications?
25 Replies RSS
I was laid off from my job after 18 years!!! I have been taking OxyContin 60 for over 5 years now for chronic pain. I have applied to Purdue for their patient assistance program to receive free OxyContin. Dr. Has been in touch with them but it takes at least four weeks to receive the medication. She is presently looking up the alternative medications that I can take in between now and the delivery of my medication from Purdue. Can anyone help me with the alternatives? I'm a wreck and so worried that whatever I'm going to be given will not work as well as the OxyContin 60. ## You may want to talk to your doctor about trying the time released Morphine, the name brand is MS Contin, but it's also available as a generic. It isn't as potent as Oxycodone, so you'd need a hi... ...

Oxycodone 20mg Time Release Or Not
2 Replies RSS
Is 20 mg oxycodone time release or not and how can I tell ## If you're prescribed it, there will be an ER on the bottle, what color is the pill and are there any #'s on it? ## The only time released Oxycodone available in the U.S. is the brand name Oxycontin, which has either an OC or an OP on the tablet and would have a 20 on the other and is pink. If that is not what you have, then you have a regular release formulation that is a generic for Roxicodone. Here's a link to learn more Oxycodone details for anyone that may need it. There is also an instant release, but it is only available in 5mg capsules. What are the markings on the tablet you're asking about? ...

Best Substitute 80 Mg Oxycodone Tid
1 Reply RSS
is there a less expensive medicine than oxycontin 80 Mg TID ## There is no generic for Oxycontin, which is the time released formulation of Oxycodone from Purdue. However, there are generics available of the regular release formulation, the name brand for this is Roxicodone, but it will not last as long as the time released formulation. A time released medication that you may want to discuss with your doctor as an alternative, which is also available as a generic, is MS Contin, which contains the active ingredient Morphine. Oxycodone, however, is stronger than Morphine, so you would require a higher dosage of the MS Contin. Are there any other questions? ...

has anyone seen an oval 15 mg percocet oxycodone that looks similar to xanax. does this exist

Does this exist? Sin was buying them. I'm scared she may be getting herself into something far more dangerous. Always fear meds I've not been able to locate on the internet w/ an image. ## Hello, Sophie! How are you? Are there any markings on it? That is what would enable them to be identified for you. But to clear something up, there is no 15mg Percocet. Percocet contains Oxycodone with Acetaminophen and it is only available in a maximum dosage of 10mgs of Oxycodone with 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Anything in a higher dose is either Roxicodone or its generics, or the time released Oxycontin. The FDA lists this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and const... ...

Oxycodone or Oxycontin is this time released? Or immediate release? ## There are no generic formulations available of Oxycontin, there are only generics available of the instant release and the regular release. Additionally, the instant release is only available in 5mg capsules. Thus, if you have a tablet that does not have the OP marking and it is from the U.S., then it is fairly safe to assume that's most likely a regular release tablet. This one is a generic for Roxicodone, which is a name brand for the regular release formulation and it contains 20mgs of Oxycodone. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Where did you find it? ## Verwon, I was reading your response to Kiki, and I have a question for you. What is the difference between Oxycodone and Oxycotin? ## Hi Susie, I sort of st... ...

try to find out if these pills are extended release ## Hello, Jack! How are you? The only time released Oxycodone available is Oxycontin and they have the marking of OP on one side and the number corresponding to the dosage on the other. The tablets with the NP 14 marking contain 20mgs in the regular release formulation, so it's a generic for Roxicodone. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## i have oxycodone N P 14 20 mg (small round grey pill).

Are Oxycontin ABG 80 mg.still made? ## Hello, John! How are you? No, the only time released formulation of Oxycontin that is currently available are the name brand tablets manufactured by Purdue Pharma. Due to the increasing theft and diversion of this opiate, the generics were removed from the market several years ago, in order to enable the manufacturer, FDA and DEA to keep better track of the supply. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OXYCODONE AN OXYCOTTON? ## It would depend on what formulation of Oxycodone you are talking about. Oxycontin contains Oxycodone, but in a time released formulation, so the medication is slowly released. Roxicodone contains Oxycodone, but in a regular release formulation, this one is also available as a generic. OxyIR contains Oxycodone in an immediate release formulation and is available as a generic, as well. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

is this brand of oxycontin 80 mg ER going to stay on the market as an Ethex generic form ## There is currently no generic Oxycontin available and there will not be for the foreseeable future. They did away with the generic several years ago to help prevent abuse and diversion, so you can only get the name brand from Purdue Pharma and all of that is being switched to the new Oxycontin OP. There are generics available of the regular release and the immediate release formulations and Ethex does make those, but no generic of the time released. Do you have any other questions? ...

of oxycoton generic and brand ## And what did you want to know? There are many available since the generics are on the market now and they all have different markings depending on which company made them. ## is there a mix of tylenol and oxycoton and if so, what is it called? ## Percocet contains oxycodone and tylenol (acetminophen). Originally Oxycontin was a time released form of oxycodone made with a wax so it would release over 6 to 12 hours, in theory. However, since 2006 the FDA had approved a Opana which is nothing like Oxycodone and sold as Oxycontin. Usually these pills will have OP on one side and dosage on other such as 10, 20, 40, or 80. Many people realize how dangerous taking Percocets are due to the Tylenol they contain due to the severe liver damage they can cause, even ... ...

looking for something cheeper than kadian but still works asgood any ideals what it might be ## Kadian contains the active ingredient Morphine, there is another option available, a generic for MS Contin, it is a 12 hour time release, so you would probably need a dosage adjustment to control your pain as well. Have you tried asking your doctor what your other alternatives are? Oxycontin, a time released Oxycodone, which can also be obtained in generic may also be another option. However, like I said, you'll need to speak to your doctor to decide what is best for you to try. ## Hi, Ask your doctor about ORAMORPH it is the generic for ms cotin. Verwon mentioned it. good luck ## thanks fo the info i did ask and your both a great help thats what he put me on again thanks ...

I was on oxycodone, 40 mg. and live in N.J.. The pharmacy's are telling me that as soon as they run out of it , it will only be available in oxycontin, has anyone else come accross this issue, it happened last month, 7-08.? ## yes,i also take the same thing,and i was also told the same thing.I live in Tennessee. ## That is exactly correct. Due to rampant abuse and theft, the time released Oxycodone is no longer available for generic production, only the name brand will be available. ## Yes, I have heard the same thing. I live in NJ. It was because of a lawsuit. The brand name company doesnt want to keep losing their business to the manufacturer of the generic. I have been on oxycodone for 5 years. I am currently without insurance and had to pay 100% of the generic. It cost 424.00 fo... ...

5mg oxycotin k 18 on one side an blank on the other. Small white round pill. ## I don't have a picture to post for you, due to copyright reasons. This is not actually an Oxycontin tablet, those are only available as the name brand and would have the OC or OP marking on them, with the number designating the dosage on the opposite side. This time released formulation is also not available in a 5mg dosage. The tablet you have, does contain 5mgs of Oxycodone, but it is the regular release tablet, which is the generic for Roxicodone. It may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ...

Does percocet 15mg come in color white? Other than green or light green is there such a thing as a white 15mg percocet? ## There is no Percocet available that contains 15mgs of anything, it is only available with a maximum of 10mgs of the Oxycodone. A 15mg tablet would just be one that contains Oxycodone and it is available in the time released formulation under the name brand Oxycontin and in the regular released formulation which is available under the brand name Roxicodone, as well as a generic. Learn more Oxycodone details here. And that said, the color doesn't actually mean anything. The manufacturer can make it any color they please. The only way to be certain of what it is would be by checking the imprint on the tablet. Can you post back with any markings on it? If you do so,... ...

the new reformulatedoxicodone 40 mg ones do not work and have bad side effects. ## I take it you are referring to the time released formulation Oxycontin? We've had many complaints about them not working as well as the old formulation and causing bad/unusual side effects. However, I'm sorry to inform you that there are no longer any generic versions of it on the market. The name brand Oxycontin is the only one that is now available. Having several on the market from various manufacturers made it harder to keep track of the supply and increased the risk of theft and diversion. There are generics available of the regular release formulation, which would be Roxicodone, but not for the time released. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

i would like to see how the pills look to make sure im getting the right medication ## Since there are different formulations of Oxycodone available, the time released, the immediate release and the regular release, the last two of which are also available as generics, I cannot possibly list descriptions and markings for all the tablets on the market. Oxycodone is also available combined with Acetaminophen in several products, such as the brand names Percocet, Roxicet or Endocet and this is also available as generics. What are the markings on the ones you have? That is what enables us to identify them for you. I can tell you that if you are on the time released formulation, Oxycontin, they are very easy to identify, since they are only available in the name brand, which is manufactured ... ...

The current programs require either no insurance, or they help people in the coverage gap, but do not assist with co-pays. Have you talked to your doctor about using an alternative medication that might be cheaper, such as MS Contin? It's a time released formulation of Morphine and there are generics available. ...
